On the side, I haven't even owned an electric hand mixer in well over a decade. After cleaning up dried on splatters I must have missed by a former 1:4 spin out of brownie mix , I quickly realized there was quite decent control and more than satisfying results with a durable spoon instead. Even so, I had a ridiculously difficult time licking around the spinner attachments, anyway :P
Unless you own a baking type biz or have physical challenges that limit your stirring capabilities, why would anyone have need of this? Are there that many people with large, roomy countertops or will this be another rarely used gadget that rests peacefully (or 'rusts' peacefully) shelved alongside the soda maker, cake pop maker, donut maker, cupcake maker, grilled cheese griddle, novelty popcorn popper, hot dog cooker, and waffle iron?
The Sunday paper sale ads are showcasing these appliances often and bragging about how $200-$400 can basically turn over dough for you. I, personally, can imagine other ways to turn over my "dough" .... and it's on that new set of strap-on handweights and bamboo spoons.
